of the house fail so miserably to win support for his own measure. he couldn't figure out what was on his own caucus, and so that means that the president is really not negotiating with anybody who can really make a deal. he can't -- you know, he can't cover any check that he writes at the oval office. i mean for weeks now on this show and others, you know, people have been talking about deals and chris mass use always getting on me for being a debbie downer. the real issue is whether boehner can bring along members of his caucus for anything and we saw last night that he really can't and it puts everybody in a tough position, but the president does end up, i think, with a more reasonable upper hand. >> well, david -- >> but the other thing i would alert you to is once they get through this, think what happened last night and what's happening this week is really a bad -- a bad omen for what the republicans might try to do once again on the debt ceiling in january or february. >> let me ask you about an interim step because president obama argued tonight both parties can agree that taxes on th
as "zero dark 30." i think "zero dark 30" earns every minute. i think for a lot of people les miserable will drag. it has this terrific innovation tom hooper. >> singing live? >> seen that? the infomercial playing in theaters. it's really quite a break drive-thru and one of those things that you sort of don't notice what you have been missing until you see it, you know, when you watch musicals they are very rarely close-ups on somebody singing because they are not actually singing. they are lip synching and the close-ups are powerful, somebody ing their voice in song on for a long, extended shot. my view is that it's a really valuable innovation but as so often happens, tom hooper falls too much in love with it. the second or third time you see somebody singing in tight closum and the 23rd time you see it, it's lost some of its power. >> bill: we can't run out and see "zero dark 30" this christmas season but what is out there now that you think is absolutely worth a night out? >> i think les miserable is if you are a fan of the musical. if you are someone who
a one year contract with the japanese team. and no surprise here, "les miserables" opening was far from miserable. it grossed $17.5 million on its one day holiday debut. and not far behind, quinn ten tarantino's film with just under $11 million. so it sounds like a lot of people spent yesterday at the movies. >> i'm going to see both. >> like when we have time. >> yeah. what an epic. those sweeping pictures. >> and it has some great names. looking forward to it. on my list, as well. >>> president obama's christmas vacation will be over in a matter of hours. we'll have the latest inside information on whether he'll get a deal or more frustration when he arrives back here in the nation's capital. [ male announcer ] alka-seltzer plus presents the cold truth. i have a cold, and i took nyquil, but i'm still "stubbed" up. [ male announcer ] truth is, nyquil doesn't unstuff your nose. what? [ male announcer ] it doesn't have a decongestant. no way. [ male announcer ] sorry. alka-seltzer plus fights your worst cold symptoms plus has a fast acting decongestant to relieve your stuffy nose.

been watching politics for years to see a speaker of the house fail so miserably to win support for his own measure. so that means the president is really not negotiating with anybody who can really make a deal. he can't cover any check that he'd write at the oval office. i've said all along the real issue is whether boehner can bring along his caucus for anything. he really can't and it puts everything in a tough position. but the president does end up with a more reasonable upper hand. i think jared is right. >> but the other thing i would just alert you to is, once they get through this, i think what happened last night and what's happening this week is really a bad, a bad omen for what the republicans might try to do once again on the debt ceiling in january or february. >> president obama argued tonight that both parties can agree taxes for the middle class cannot go up. let's watch what he said. >> in ten days, we face a deadline. even though democrats and republicans are arguing about whether those rates can go up for wealthest individuals, all of us agree that tax rates shouldn'
the importance for the republican party, i mean, they have done miserably with latino voters. so they clearly have to be on board for this to work. i want to play something that the president said during the campaign about the republicans and immigration. let's take a listen. >> if they have seen that people who care about this issue have turned out in strong numbers, that they will rethink it if not because it's the right thing to do, at least because it's in their political interest to do so. >> people turned nout strong numbers. there is a political interest when you talk about taxes. is that going to mean the republicans are going to do the right thing or are going to do what's in their best political interest to do? >> i think in this case it's both. i think it's the right thing to do for americans, but it's also the right thing for the republicans in their political interest if they actually want anything outside of control of just the house. they actually need the latino vote for senatorial seats and they need it also for the white house. in order for them to do so, they're going to ha
of a bad film. my top three favorites "jack reacher," "less miserable be," and? "django unchained" hands down. >> violent these films given the mood of the countries. nice hat, by the way. >> thank you. >> they could be tough films. what about end of the world? it's not you're still there, i'm still here but maybe you're in the mood for end of the world flicks. any thoughts on that. >> if you were so so depressed that the world didn't yesterday and you just have to watch a film to cope which is what i do to cope with things, then i think "the day the earth stood still," the 1951 version, don't deal with the remake, just go to the original source. that movie's a great message of actual nonviolence. another fantastic armageddon movie and one of the best i think actually made for tv end of the world movies is called "asteroid." and this stars annabella schiori. if anybody remembers that fantastic actress. she is an expert on the world and it is coming to an end because the asteroids are coming. this was made for tv, but it won an emmy for outstanding visual effects that actually rival a lot
we should see. you say we should see will "les miserables." >> this is one -- i consider this movie to be a cinematic revolution. the fact that they're singing live. this is such a huge deal for movies because most musicals have a recorded sound track. so the actors prerecord it three or four months prior. by being able to sing live, they're able to change their emotions and not be married to the prerecord vocals. i sat down with anne hathaway and i talked to her about this benefit of singing live and is this thank is what she had to say. >> i remember at the end of the second day of the lovely ladies of the tooth pulling thinking, oh, god, that was as far as i had intended to go with my performance and i haven't sung. i have no idea what tomorrow will bring. so all this preparation -- i had to build on it kind of in the moment and if we recorded many months prior to that, then of course i wouldn't have been able to do that. >> brian: she attractive in person? >> i definitely think so. i love anne hathaway. i think she's absolutely gorgeous. in the movie, she's so phenomenal and it'
in 2004, squandered it with a miserable debate performance to win by a bigger margin than most expected. sort of like barack obama this year. it works on mysterious issues, too. amazing when you think about it. in 2004, it treated like a fringe concept. a massachusetts state supreme court ruling, there wasn't much of a debate. nbc news/wall street journal polling 63 tkt to 3%. bush played up the devotion to traditional marriage. democrats mostly just tried to ignore the whole thing hoping it would go away. you probably remember what it was like when bush won. value voters were the majority. america was a fundamentally conservative country. anyone who didn't support this would have to deal with it. all of this happened just eight years ago. feels more distant after what played out this year in 2012. the incumbent president endorsed marriage equality. gay marriage started winning at the ballot box. 4 for 4 last month. polls show plurality and outright majority for gay marriage. it's not slowing the transformation of gay marriage. it's been rapid and profound. it's hard to think of a singl
leno with conan o'brien and that plan failed miserably. >> bill: yeah, how did that work out? >> horrendously. you may find more mcdonald's restaurants open on christmas day this year but those workers giving you your big mac and fries will not be getting a dime extra for working on the big holiday. raw story is reporting mcdonald's is encouraging its franchisees to open on christmas to help a final year-end sales push but they will not pay those employees who choose to work overtime. they say they will only ask the employees to voluntarily sign up for shifts. >> bill: you know, peter isn't that just outrageous? >> read between the lines. >> bill: this is why we need unions. this is why they should be able to organize. even if they volunteer to work on christmas at least give them time and a half. >> give them an extra french fry in the meal. >> yeah, right. if you drink a lot of diet pepsi, a big change is coming to the soda. you may not really notice. they're changing the type of artificial sweetener that t
a person who commits suicide and then homicide-suicide, not only are they so miserable this they are ready to die, but they feel that they need to get some sense of vengeance by killing other people and taking them with them. now, i know you want to predict and look around, parents want to see in their kids. you can't do that. it's really literally impossible to identify mass murderers in advance. what we can tell and parents can tell when their kids need assistance and need help and cowbell couns counseling, but can't predict they are going to be mass murderers. >> for more now and the new details involving the massacre, let's go straight to nbc's jay gray who is standing by in newtown. jay, what more can you tell us? >> reporter: well, craig, i think what you've said is very true, and what everybody has been talking about here, but i think it's important to point out there's been so much misinformation involved with this case that we're finally beginning to learn some of the very basic specifics here. we know that the accused gunman, adam lanza, did carry not only a semiautomatic weapon
, miserable weather there. prompted more than 1,600 cancellations throughout the country. this weekend has been a welcome relief for many of these travelers. what we'll need to watch is over the week ahead there will be a storm right now in the west coast and moving east. that will cause many disruptions across the country for many travelers and it's something they'll be watching. again right now, things are looking pretty good at the airport. back to you, alex. >> i'm sure that's music to many people's ears. thank you very much, gabe gutierrez. >>> straight ahead, the big three on the fiscal fight. does house speaker boehner have any more negotiating room with the president? a restaurant is , try running four. fortunately we've got ink. it gives us 5x the rewards on our internet, phone charges and cable, plus at office supply stores. rewards we put right back into our business. this is the only thing we've ever wanted to do and ink helps us do it. make your mark with ink from chase. share "not even close." share "you owe me..." share "just right." the share everything plan. shareable data
all was miserable. i do not make a million dollars. they could at least let us keep our tax break, but now they have cut us out of that. they have taken 95% out of the equation. that really picked me off. i am really dissatisfied with the gop party right now. >> don in westport massachusetts -- westport, mass.. independent caller. >> john. we have been watching all this go on. it is benghazi, the president tried to push these things through. i'm sorry. i was a democrat but i changed but i can no longer be a democrat because i cannot understand what they're trying to do. we have $16 trillion in deficits. we cannot fix anything and we are not going to do any spending cuts. so we are going to add more to the deficit but all you are going to do is tax millionaires. that is fine, but those are the people that create the jobs for the middle class. i depend on these people that have the money to pay me. >> what do you do for a living? caller: i am a construction worker. >> democrat caller from louisiana. nina. i just wanted to say, if you listen to the callers, of how disgusted we are wi
